More than $1! Been there, done that. And we didn't move ours anywhere but up, then down! I saw all the utility crews there this morning. Would have been fun to watch!

There was a historic farm house scheduled to come down when I was 20/21 years old. I could have bought the house for dirt cheap and had it moved. Then I found out the cost of moving it.........um , yeah.
Needless to say the house is no more. All the breaking into the house to wander through it and all the dreams I had for it are gone.
All the history is gone. A nice industrial building sits there now.

Funny how $1 for a house.......an historical house no less, sounds like the deal of a lifetime! The cost of moving it wasn't much more than just raising it up here, but then you have to add in the foundation, utilities, septic.....
I would much rather see a house moved than demolished!
